The BUGBite holster was designed for maximum comfort and concealment. Each holster is designed specifically to conform to the shape of the human leg ensuring that your firearm is supported properly and in a way that allows you to forget you are even carrying a pistol. The BUGBite keeps your firearm properly oriented upwards at all times, and because the design lacks velcro or snaps, removing your pistol when you need it is 100% silent, unlike almost every other type of holster. The holster is designed to comfortably carry pistols from small all the way up to mid-size frame so you only need one holster that can work with a variety of your firearms.
Our size chart is a guide to help you select the best size. BUGBite holsters are made of a light breathable Neoprene that has a snug stretchy comfortable fit. The size chart is a good guide but much like any garment regardless of what size you are, fit is a matter of personal preference and can vary depending on how a leg is shaped, how muscular the calf is or not.
If you are right between sizes. If your measurement falls between two sizes, we suggest going up in size. Fit is in part a matter of personal preference, if when you receive your order you feel a different size would be a better and more comfortable fit, please let us know and we will be happy to help with an exchange.

I have owned several ankle type holsters over the years. This is by far the best and most comfortable holster I have had of this type. I like the fact that the pistol is higher on the calf than with the actual "ankle" holsters. This allows me to use this holster while still wearing 8 inch boots without interference with the weapon. I first tried this with a Glock 23 just to test it out. Surprisingly, it fit and fit well. I do not recommend carrying a G23 in this position due to bulk, however this gives an idea of the size weapon that can be accomodated. I use this with a G27 on a regular basis. I was not happy at first with the carry position due to the fact that the butt of the weapon printed heavily on my pants leg. This ended up being my fault, not the holster. The print was caused by the Pearce extension on the mag. Upon switching to an unaltered factory mag, the printing issue was gone. I cannot recommend this holster enough. The material and workmanship are excellent, the fit is terrific and the entire rig is very comfortable (even for all day carry). Top notch.
The unit works good for the Sig P938 but not much larger weapon than that. I had to return the 1st one and get the next size larger for it to fit my calf properly. (it says that in the sizing instructions). I had originally wanted to carry my full size 9 or 40 cal but it wont do that without causing a problem with printing.
By far the best holster I have ever had. Not good with over calf socks but good if roll on glue is used. Ask wife about glue.
This is my third ankle holster and first Bug Bite. I use it for my Ruger LCP Custom. It is by far the most streamlined, comfortable and easy to draw from of the three. It does not ride down or sweat. If your looking for an ankle holster, look no further this is a winner. I call it my Backup Bug Bite.
Very comfortable. Stays where you put it.
This is the only ankle holster I have ever liked. I have tried many and hated all of them until now. The BugBite holster is a truly innovative design. It is comfortable for all day wear and a perfect deep concealment holster. I love it!
For the most part, I like the holster. My calf measurement was at the upper end of size "C", so it's a bit tight. I'm thinking, that with a little wear, it will stretch a bit. I wear it to Sunday church and you can't tell that it's on, with my regular trousers. I couldn't, however, wear it with any trousers with a tighter fit, in the lower leg. I carry a small revolver in it and would like to carry my M&P Shield, but it's still too tight.
great way to carry concealed
The Bugbite is great !!
Very comfortable. After wearing it a few times, you don’t even realize it’s on.
Holds the gun very secure.
Obviously, you can’t access your gun as quick as if it were in a waistband holster, but where that is not practical it sure beats not carrying at all !!
Also, it is completely concealed, and can be worn with boots.
I love it !!!
